    73: Empowering Young Leader's of Tomorrow in Today's World - Victoria Ibiwoye

    73: Empowering Young Leader's of Tomorrow in Today's World - Victoria Ibiwoye

    This episode is the first of the Unmute Education limited series dedicated to raising the volume on the education conversation in the leadup to the WISE 2021 Global Summit taking place in Doha, Qatar and online on 7-9 December 2021.

    Featured in this podcast is Victoria Ibiwoye, is the Founder of OneAfricanChild, a youth-led organization with a mission to create opportunities in underserved communities and unleash the potential in young people through global citizenship education programs. She also served as the Youth Representative of the SDG-Education 2030 Steering Committee.

    As the world slowly emerges from the shadows of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important that we not only take stock of the largely negative impact on education with the prolonged lockdowns and school closures, but also look ahead to the challenges that confront us, most of which long predate the pandemic, and the opportunities that are becoming available to solve some of the world’s most intractable challenges, not least of which is the promise of universal quality education enshrined in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

    As a global community, we have gone long on ambition, whether it be the 17 SDG’s or the aspiration to limit global warming to below 1.5 degrees Celsius, above pre-industrial levels. However, more often than not, we have fallen short on execution. Not surprisingly, young people have noticed this discrepancy, and in growing numbers have embraced civil society activism demanding meaningful change. Activism, although necessary, is unfortunately not sufficient to bring about desired outcomes. It needs to be accompanied by action.

    Tune in to this first episode of the Unmute Education limited series to hear Victoria Ibiwoye’s discussion alongside host and CEO of WISE, Stavros Yiannouka tackle youth leadership, One African Child, and many more topics.

    72: Post-Pandemic Priorities for Education Part 6: Africa - Shannon May

    72: Post-Pandemic Priorities for Education Part 6: Africa - Shannon May

    Africa is the birthplace of humanity. The place where Homo Sapiens evolved language, built increasingly complex tools, and took the first tentative steps on a journey that would see our species populate the entire world.

    If Africa represents humanity’s distant past, it also, in many respects, represents its future. Most of the world’s growth in population today, and for the foreseeable future, is taking place in Africa.

    The UN projects that by 2090, around half of all children under the age of 15 will be in Africa. It does not take a giant leap of the imagination to conclude that the education of those children is of crucial importance, not just for the continent itself, but for the entire world.

    To help us understand the state of education in Africa, President and Co-Founder of NewGlobe, Shannon May joins Host and CEO of WISE, Stavros Yiannouka, in conversation.

    NewGlobe is the largest supporter of technology-enabled schools across Africa, supporting national and state governments and communities across the continent.

    Tune in to hear Shannon discuss the overall state of education in Africa pre-pandemic, education responses to the pandemic, parental engagement, the status and appreciation of teachers, and many more topics, including a special section towards the end featuring Education Editor of the Financial Times, Andrew Jack reflecting on the conversation.

    71: Post-Pandemic Priorities for Education Part 5: Europe - Tracey Burns

    71: Post-Pandemic Priorities for Education Part 5: Europe - Tracey Burns

    Europe is the world's wealthiest continent and the first region in the world to modernize. The scientific and industrial revolutions began in Europe and the first recognizably modern administrative states were established there, with the possible exception of China. Europe's fragmentation into competing empires and nation-states is seen as both a strength and a weakness.

    Given the historical context, it is not surprising that Europe's policy response to the COVID-19 pandemic was far from uniform, even in the collective structures of the EU. When it comes to education priorities for the post-pandemic era, can Europe reprise its role as the world's policy innovation laboratory?

    To help answer this question, Senior Analyst at the OECD Center for Educational Research & Innovation, Tracey Burns joins us in the latest episode of our special series focusing on post-pandemic priorities for the future of education.

    70: Post-Pandemic Priorities for Education Part 4: Brazil - Claudia Costin

    70: Post-Pandemic Priorities for Education Part 4: Brazil - Claudia Costin

    Claudia Costin is the founder and director of the Center for Excellence and Innovation in Education Policies (FGV CEIPE), a think and do tank within Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV), a leading private University in Brazil, where she is a professor. Claudia was until 2018 a visiting Professor at the Harvard School of Education.

    Brazil is the most populous country and the largest economy in Latin America. It is home to over 650 million people, about a third of whom live in just one country. The region is currently where some of the world’s most intractable challenges confronting the world are present in their most acute forms. For example, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America & the Caribbean, the region is the most unequal part of the world, notwithstanding positive economic growth.

    Claudia Costin joins us to help navigate through recent developments in Brazil and the broader Latin American region, and to discuss post-pandemic priorities for the future of education in the region.
